Obesity Causes Low Back Pain

Obesity Causes Low Back Pain.  While this fact seems quite obvious, research published in 2018 actually backs up this claim.  With obesity on the rise, paired with an out of control opioid epidemic, America needs a safe drug-free alternative.  Fortunately, spinal adjustments and enzyme nutrition can help.

Obesity Causes Low Back Pain.  Obesity is on the rise in the United States.  Sadly, its growth continues to increase at an alarming rate.  Unfortunately, so is our opioid crisis.  Is there a connection?  As a matter of fact, research from 2018 shows a clear connection between back pain and obesity.  If this pain gets bad enough, some sufferers may turn to opioid medication for pain relief.  However, there is another solution.

In May of 2018, JMPT published research demonstrating the connection between obesity and low back pain.  In fact, the study concluded the following.  “Overweight and obesity were associated with increased odds of low back pain.”

Unfortunately, this can create a viscous cycle.  Sadly, as you gain wait, you feel more pain.  To make matters worse, as you feel more pain, you exercise less because of that pain.  As time goes on, the cycle continues until it spins out of control. Later on in life, you go to the doctor only to find out you’re suffering from all of the complications obesity causes.  These problems include diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease, stroke and many more.  Conversely, the key is to take care of this problem long before these problems arise.

The Safe and Natural Approach

Just how do we take care of this problem safely and naturally?  In our office, we use a combination of traditional or low-force chiropractic care, enzyme nutrition, dietary changes and custom tailored exercise program.  First, the right specific spinal corrections can relieve your low back pain allowing you to exercise.  In fact, spinal adjustments can even improve your athletic performance.  Did you know that research from the Journal of the American Medical Association reports that chiropractic is more effective than medicine at treating pain.  On top of that, the right dietary changes paired with the right enzyme supplements can help your body properly eliminate chronic inflammation.  This is the leading cause of obesity.  Lastly, other enzymes can even help your body break down fat properly.

If You’re Concerned

Are you overweight and suffer from back pain, we may be able to help without drugs or surgery.  If that sounds good, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120.  Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA). In fact, did you know that both NASA and Cancer Treatment Centers of America rely on BIA? These tests help me determine if you are a good candidate for care. If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Chiropractic helps medical care.

Chiropractic helps medical care.  In a world where medicine is still at odds with spinal adjustments, new research shows that they can work very well together.  In fact, the military is now adopting this very strategy.

Chiropractic helps medical care.  According to the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA), spinal corrections helped military patients recover faster than medicine alone.  In fact, the study concluded the following results.  “Chiropractic care, when added to medical care, resulted in improvements in low back pain levels and disability in active duty military personnel.”  Furthermore, the study further validates spinal adjustments with the following statement.  “This study provides additional support for the inclusion of chiropractic care as an important part of combined care for neck and back pain.”  On top of that, those who received adjustments were able to return to duty faster.

Some VA Hospitals try Adjustments First

In fact, some VA Hospitals recommend spinal adjustments to back surgery patients before their surgery.  Surprisingly, this lead to a 50% reduction in the number of people who needed surgery.  That is to say, spinal adjustments reduced the need for surgery in half of the patients.  For all of these people, doctors thought surgery was their only option.

A Complete Approach to Back & Neck Pain

Rather than focusing on the symptom, which is your pain, we choose to focus on the cause.  While we understand that you’re suffering, we want to address the actual cause and not the symptom.  We achieve this with our unique combined approach.  This cutting edge approach includes the right type of spinal corrections, a home exercise program, specific traction, soft tissue work and enzyme nutrition.   If your problem is more serious, we will even work alongside a physical therapist.  We can also use traditional techniques, or low-force adjustments.  These low-force moves occur without any “cracking” or “popping.”

Do you suffer from severe or frequent back pain?   Are you missing out on work family or fun?  If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance.  Minor neck pain is a common occurrence in our society.  While many people like you ignore it because it’s a minor problem that usually goes away on its own, this may not be the best idea.  Research shows that minor neck pain can affect your coordination and balance even in your legs.  Furthermore, research shows chiropractic can help.

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance.  According o research from PLOS-1, minor neck pain can affect your coordination and balance.  In fact, it can even affect the movement of your arms and legs.  Now, how in the world can some minor pain in your neck affect your entire health in such a profound way?  Well, let me explain that for you…

First of all, it’s important to remember that every signal that travels from the brain to your body has to pass through your neck.  To further complicate matters, the part of your brain that controls your movement and coordination crosses sides in the neck.  If you recall, the left side of the brain controls the right side of your body and vis. versa.  This means, at some point, the nerves, or wires, have to cross sides.  Well, this happens in the neck.

Neck Pain affects Coordination and Balance

To make matters worse, sensation from your entire body is also inhibited by even the slightest neck pain.  Remember your neck is a place where all the signals have to travel to get to and from your brain.  As a result, this area of your spinal cord needs a lot of band width.  Well, let me put it another way.  This are of the spinal cord needs more lanes in the highway than any other place.  Why?  Because this is where all of the traffic to and from your body merges.

If you’re experiencing even mild neck pain, this means that some type of stress is irritating the nerves in the neck.  Sadly, this irritation reduces the number of lanes in your highway.  As a result, there’s a traffic jam.  Of course, when there’s a traffic jam due to an accident, fewer signals can get through.  Additionally, they get through much slower.

Chiropractic Can Help

However, the good news is that chiropractic can help “clear the accident” to get the nerve traffic flowing completely and at full speed.  At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we take a comprehensive approach to your neck problems, because we realize your minor neck pain has serious consequences.  We combine precise low force or traditional spinal corrections with home exercises, massage therapy and sometimes enzyme nutrition.  This “clears the accident” as quickly and completely as possible so your whole body works properly.

Do you suffer from even minor neck pain?  Are you missing out on work family or fun? This can be a sign of a more serious problems.  Please don’t wait.   Give us a call and set up a consultation, or contact us on the web. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. Then we can schedule a thorough examination.  At that time I’ll order or examine any images and perform a thorough examination so we can discover the cause of your suffering.  After that we can either put the best plan in place, or provide you with the right referral.

Chiropractic Helps Headaches…

Did you know that nearly 50 million American adults suffer from headaches, according to the National Institutes of Health?  Sadly, many Americans turn to medication for temporary relief.  The common go-to medications are acetaminophen (Tylenol), aspirin, and ibuprofen.   Not only do these medications only cover the symptom, but they also can cause serious damage to your organs.  However, research shows that chiropractic care can help with headaches without harmful side effects.

Often, when I’m treating a patient, they will ask me if they should take any pain medication.  Of course, I tell them it is out of my scope of practice to recommend taking, changing or stopping any medication.  Of course, this includes both prescriptions and over the counter drugs.  Many will drop the subject, but others will press on asking which is best.  I try to make light of the situation by saying, “Well, which organ do you want to lose, your liver, your kidneys, or your stomach?”   Of course, they often give me a puzzled look.

You see, Tylenol causes liver problems, ibuprofen causes kidney problems, and aspirin causes stomach problems.  While taking them once in a while is probably OK, taking them regularly will cause these issues.  Of course, all they really do is cover the symptom, and not the problem.  In fact, let me give you a comparison.

Do You Do this with your Car?

Let’s say you’re driving in your care the check engine light comes on.  What do you do?  You take your car into the shop.  Once there, the mechanic will find and fix the problem.  However, you have another choice.  You can simply disconnect the wire to the check engine light.  If you do the light won’t come on any more.  That’s like taking these medications for your headache.  You basically covered the check engine light.  Sadly, the underlying problem is still there.  Of course, disconnecting your check engine light could also lead to more serious problems down the road.  Unfortunately, the same is true for your health.

Chiropractic Helps Headaches

However, you have a choice.  Research from around the world shows that chiropractic care can reduce headaches anywhere from 22 to 52%.  The most recent research comes from the National Institute of Health in 2015.

Natural Options

While I don’t treat headaches, we can find the source of stress in your body that’s causing them.  Once we locate the source of stress, we can help those stressed parts work properly.  In fact, we have several tools at our disposal.  These natural effective tools include specific spinal corrections, massage therapy, customized stretching and enzyme nutrition.  After a thorough consultation, we will figure out your needs and put the right pieces in place to support health and longevity.

Do you suffer from headaches?  Are you missing out on work family or fun? This can be a sign of a serious condition.  Please don’t wait.   Give us a call and set up a consultation, or contact us on the web. I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. Then we can schedule a thorough examination.  At that time I’ll order or examine any images and perform a thorough examination so we can discover the cause of your suffering.  After that we can either put the best plan in place, or provide you with the right referral.

Chronic Neck Pain Nutrition

Chronic Neck Pain Nutrition – your pain may be Nutritional.  Many Americans just like you suffer from neck pain on a regular basis.  Often, you turn to chiropractic, physical therapy or medications for relief.  While most people think of the obvious physical stress, you may not realize that your chronic neck pain may be due nutritional problems.

Chronic Neck Pain Nutrition – your pain may be Nutritional.  According to WebMD, over 100 million Americans suffer from chronic neck pain.  In fact treatment costs our nation over 600 billion dollars per year between treatment and missed work.  For immediate relief, many turn to medications, physical therapy and chiropractic care.  In fact, these are great options if your neck pain  came from physical stress.  But if what nutritional stress caused your neck pain?  Then physical treatments will only provide temporary relief.

So how can you tell if your neck pain may be from a nutritional problem rather than a physical problem?  Here are some other symptoms you might see:

  • Stiffness in the morning, or after rest
  • Chronic pain in the neck, upper ribs and/or shoulder(s)
  • Dry Skin, Dandruff, or Hair Loss,
  • Difficulty conceiving (women), or low sperm count (men)
  • Frequent blisters or cold sores
  • Scaly skin patches

So what does this mean?  How do you alter your diet to address the problem?  These are signs that either your not getting enough healthy fats in your diet, or, your body has trouble processing them.  If you’re not getting enough, simple increase healthy fats and iodine in your diet.  But what if you’re getting enough from your diet and still have some of these issues?  In these cases it means your body may have trouble digesting, absorbing or using healthy fats.  In these cases, blood tests will usually show high triglycerides and indications of slow metabolism.  Meanwhile a 24 hour urine analysis will show high calcium loss.

Our Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic, we use a scientific approach to see how your body digests and uses healthy fats.  These tests can include an organ stress test, a 24 hour urine analysis, and possible blood work.  Our testing and analysis is based on sound medical principals.  Once we have a clear understanding of where the stress lies, the proper dietary changes and enzyme supplements help your body work the way it’s supposed to.

Do you suffer from chronic neck pain?   Or perhaps you have some of the symptoms I listed earlier.  Are you missing out on work family or fun? If so, you can contact us one of several ways to set up a consultation. You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life. I will even do some preliminary testing as well as Bio Impedance Analysis (BIA).

If you’re not, we’ll make every effort to provide the proper referral.

Medicine Validates Chiropractic

Medicine Validates Chiropractic

Medicine Validates Chiropractic – Do you suffer from chronic back, low back or neck pain?  Have you been avoiding the chiropractor because of the negative press?  Did you know that chiropractic is safe, effective and natural?  In fact research from JAMA, the Journal of the American Medical Association validates this.

Yes, it’s true, medicine validates chiropractic.  I hope you’re sitting down.  In case you didn’t know, chiropractic uses specific corrections to correct spinal bones.  The purpose is to restore spinal alignment.  This improves posture, movement, decreases muscle spasms, and restores health.  And while it also helps with pain, chiropractic is about more than pain.  It takes pressure off of vital nerves so your body can work properly.  In fact, less than 8% of the nerves in your body deal with pain.  The other 92% control every function in your body.  The research shows that a very high percentage of people under chiropractic care not only had lower pain levels, but improved function as well.

In fact, pain reduction was 91% and functional improvement was just over 70%.  That’s higher than just about any other treatment type.  JAMA published this research recently; April 11th, 2017.  However, along with the research JAMA ALSO included an article as to why Medical Doctors were hesitant to refer to chiropractors.  Mainly because science still cannot explain why it works.  Of course, this is according to the MD’s.  I have tons of research showing how this amazing treatment works.  However, even if the mechanism behind chiropractic isn’t clear, research shows it still works.  In fact scientists fail to understand why many medications work, or what causes certain diseases.  That, of course doesn’t invalidate them.

A Complete Approach

At Redmond Ridge Nutrition & Chiropractic we use a unique combination of specific corrective adjustments.   We skillfully perform traditional or low force care, gentle traction, home exercises and enzyme nutrition.  The purpose is to improve all of the tissues causing your problem for a more complete solution.  Of course it’s also vital to support healthy tissue repair, which is where enzyme nutrition comes in.  In fact we will never perform a chiropractic adjustment on you that is either unsafe, or makes you feel uncomfortable.

You can reach us on the web, stop by our office in Redmond, WA, or call us at 425-868-0120. Then I will personally sit down with you and talk about your suffering and how it affects your life.
